New PhD Thesis: Julie Blomberg Gudmundsson - Time of Turmoil: Reading and Media Combination in the American Young Adult Novels Cathy’s Book, Skeleton Creek, and Endgame


In an attempt both to retain interest in Young Adult fiction and to capitalize on the growing Internet usage among teens, many writers experiment with novel forms of storytelling that combined print fiction with other media. This study focuses on three such American Young-Adult novels to show a spectrum of experimental endeavors: Cathy’s Book: If Found Call (650) 266-8233 (2006), Skeleton Creek: Ryan’s Journal (2009), and Endgame: The Calling (2014).

The defence takes place on 4 February 2022, 10:15.
